    Martins Bank Building and India Building both under construction - both Herbert J. Rowse buildings as was the Philharmonic and the Mersey Tunnel fascias and Ventilation shafts. He was a busy chappie in the 20s and 30s in Liverpool.

    Look at the large office building erected in the 40 years to WW2, it was astonishing. Then after WW2. Nothing!

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    I've always wondered about that.
    That building was mysteriously called Government Buildings, and (apart from the GPO, another Government building) was the only building in that part of Liverpool to be bombed so badly it had to be demolished.
    And the site has only been used as a car park ever since.
    Why?

    I've got a pic' somewhere,of that building,and though it was burnt out,like the customs house, it was structurally sound!(that's what I've read,anyway!)Just part of Liverpool's decline,at least in government eye's!

    I love this buliding. We've had the ventilation tower posted before, but here's some I took the other day.

    There must be lots of art-deco on the cimema threads as well?

    Default St Monica's

    For another hidden Art Deco treasure, check out St Monica's, Fernhill Road, Bootle. 3 Angels on outside. I got a bit lost in the area today, and had to pull over to admire the building. Sorry, haven't got any photos, but you can easily find them online.
    Architect was Francies Xavier VELARDE, who also did St Matthew's in Clubmoor.

    They are both lovely churches. St Monicas is really an impressive building, and St Mathews I love the tower.

    Art Deco could be accused of being bland with what had gone before but it is very distinctive.

    Here is my tame effort of the current subject.

    I love St Monicas. There's something about it that makes you just want to stand and stare up at it. It must be the dimensions.
    We have a lovely art deco church in Anfield (St Columba) http://www.ship-of-fools.com/mystery/2007/1425.html
    it's a handsome looking church, but St Monicas is more impressive in size.

    Any photos anywhere of the shop F.G. Thomas in Bold Street. They moved in the late 60's. It was a heraldic stationers and had a department for wedding invitations, wedding cake decorations (some in sterling silver) Wedding napkins, tablecloths, everything you needed but very expensive.
